Pharmacy Students Switch Places for New PerspectivesJuly 18, 2018 |
by Kristen Coppock
Student pharmacists at 2 universities in different communities will learn how the other half practices pharmacy during a new program that will send each group across the country for part of a 9-month experience. The Health Equity Leadership Program is partly an exchange experience, designed to expose each group of students to the unique challenges, methods, and rewards of working in health care settings that are extremely rural or urban.
The program will send students from Howard University in Washington, D.C., to the University of Wyoming (UW) in Laramie, while aspiring pharmacists from the Wyoming school will head to the nation’s capital.
